Before Turning 30

Less than two years remaining, my age will turn to 30 years old. It means that I am not young again. Some people (in particular Indonesians) when interact with you whose same age with me probably will ask like this “what’s your job?”. The question maybe ordinary one but what it actually means?. Here my explanation.

In age 30, you should have got married then have happy life with your wife and children. You have a permanent job with good salary and also have house and car (even by credit). If your career is related to academics, make sure that you are a permanent lecturer. If you are government officials, you have already became part of civil servant.

How if you are not like that ? You are failed.

I do not believe with that mainstream actually. For me, turning 30 years old means that you have already mature. You know what will you do in life, you know “who am I ?”.  It’s first step to proclaim your own history. It’s symbol that you have an achievement.


My opinion

This morning, a national newspaper whose customer majority is eastern Indonesia, Jawa Pos, published my writing with title ” Shenzhen dan Supremasi Teknologi Tiongkok”. It is the first time for me in publishing an opinion that I have high concern about it in research. Hopefully after this I can publish another article and also scientific journal related about that topic.

Success Story

Life is an journey. Your life will alive forever if you have hope for better tomorrow. So life can be named as journey to seek a success. Every one has different meanings of success story. For me especially this year’s success story is about finding someone I love.

This is more than everything that energyze every single work you do.

When you imagine her face smilling, it remember that some day you will together with her, sharing everything and making laugh and smile together. She is everything. Love can not be definited with some straight statements like what looks like in textbook. It has no logics but only can be felt. You always think about her, sometimes calling her, checking her recent updates for social media, and so on. All those are sign representing that you love her.

But, those all are not enough if you hope that she love you back. You must understand her clearly, you can not force your ego but you should not be her servant or “slave”. Loving each other is about compromizing and understanding each other, so it is long journey. Maybe now you click with her, but wait for she to click with you. Be patient and keep positive.

Si Doel The Movie

Saturday night (4/8) after eating durian, my two friends and I watched a movie in Ciwalk. This movie began at 11 pm, so we waited for a half hour. We knew that this film would tell about love journey between Doel and his behalf : Zainab and Sarah before. As you know, all of us are men, no there was no romantic anymore :p

The beginning of this movie talking about Doel and Mandra that will goto the Netherlands attending Sarah’s causin, Hans. This guy said to Doel that he would be promised with a job, but it turns out a trap to make Doel and Sarah met. Doel knew his son after 12 years didn’t meet. As you know,  when Sarah leaved Doel, she was pregnant. Doel could’nt do anything because of his poverty. Finally, Doel married Zainab but he never divorce with Sarah.

Doel is a kind man, showing of a ideal betawinesse, but he has complex problem in life that make him strong. This film is worth to watch.

Stay Overnight at Friend’s

Lat night was long chance I could hang out. After iftar together with my dorm folks then we hung out in some coffee shop in Supratman street. We talked about many things. After that, we then went to my friend’s indekost to park my motorcycle and went to PVJ. In that time, watch showed that already at 11s pm. There was traffict jum when heading to the location. Finally we arrived half of hour before the mid night. I only accompanied my friend who want to make use of discount up to 70 percents provided by PVJ management.  So, there was nothing to buy.

Evidently, my friend didn’t buy anything. We then just chatted randomly about many things including woman behind facebook, Sheryl Sandberg. Time showed that the day was changing and closed to sahur time. We then went home still using Grab. I stayed at my friend indekost. When one of my friends already slept, I continued chatting with other one. We were three in that time. There was important topic we discussed, business opportunity that can be created in Indonesia. Time was ended when closed to sahur time.

Aerodynamics Solution-Based Company

First time I knew UAVINDO Nusantara as Unmaned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) company, a small enterprise that produce UAV or drone. But, after taking much interview with its player including its founder and director right now, this a solution-based company with aerodynamics as its core basic technology. So, since this company built in 2000s, variety of UAV that’s successfully produced just several. But it has many another products like wind tunnel, skydiving tunnel, survey car, and so on. When I asked its director last minute ago he convinced me that UAVINDO is solution-based company with aerodynamics as its core competency. He chosed that concern (not a drone company with its manufacturing) because of long history of this company when initially built. Its nature was not absolutely commercial, there was spirit to educate. In my term, this company is an university that only focus in solving problem using aerial technology. Wait my long story about this company in my upcoming book.
